Switzerland's Three-Lakes-Region is host to the extremely rare "Landiausstellung", or national exposition. In Meso's largest project to-date, they helped 3deluxe architects build a fountain of virtual water - consisting of 18 projections controlled by 23 synchronized computers, responding to voice, movements in space, internet activity, and even the weather. Complete with internet-based creature development tool. Find out more on Cyberhelvetia.ch. Two of the various developments for Cyberhelvetia.ch that were created using vvvv include Aquaphone and Lifeforms.

Aquaphone. With the Aquaphone you can send voice messages to the opposite side of the pool. Your words create bubbles which float in the virtual water; with the Aquaphone's sensor they can be opened and heard. Run the sensor over the play area and catch the bubbles of the person opposite - you will then hear the message sent to you over the loudspeaker.

LifeformsShape the living organism of the Cyberhelvetia.ch pool - run your finger over the luminous glass surface in the middle of the bench and amuse yourself with the darting and harmless sea snake!

evvvvil: @polyrhythm: No software, pure C++ and GLSL. IQ's 4kb framework does help, but get your text coding gloves on. http://www.iquilezles.org/code/isystem1k4k/isystem1k4k.htm
